Finding a studio in Dubai
The space
Not pet friendly
Discovery Gardens, after alot of searching, was a great relief. The surroundings are gorgeous with great views and walks. As compared to a studio in JLT or Marina, the space to breathe really makes all of the difference. We found a studio in the Zen Clusters, a building managed by more… Asteco and it works out because of security, maintenance and a good living experience altogether. I work at Dubai Media City which has great bus connectivity and Ibn Battuta metro station is not too far away and well connected. Show less

Traffic mayhem
Small shops around
The traffic
Discovery Gardens planning has not been thought through. Even these days its infamous for the horrendous traffic at the peak hours. There is only one entrance and exit onto Sheik Zayed wich is simply not enough. The flat for a studio was a decent size with a balcony with decent more… finishing. The corridors, hallways resemble a dorm and the constant smell of food can be quite disturbing. In the Zen Clusters shops and even Battuta Mall is a walk away so you don't always have to get in to the car. There is underground parking as well as visitor parking outside. There were no pools or gyms at the time. Show less

Discovery Gardens - One of the best for Family Living.
Family living, nearby Market, access to main areas like Mall, Marina beach, Metro station
For streets 4 onwards, access to market is an issue. Not a walled society.
Discovery Gardens is by far one of the best areas for a family living, it offers a good surroundings for a family with children - play areas, green areas, number of trees, supermarkets, etc. I stay in Zen cluster on Street 1B, Building 34 which again is one of the more… best located building in Discovery Gardens, being stones throw away from supermarkets, restaurants and also a walk away to Ibn Batuta Mall. But Discovery Gardens overall has its negatives also. Market is accessible by walking to Street 1, 2 and may be up to 3 only. For other streets, residents have to travel all the way to street 1 for any shopping. It is not a walled locality and so the area outside the building is not secure. Every building though has its own security. Those who are used to living in a big society, green society compared to the high rises, this offers a good option. Traffic was a problem till sometime back, but now with multiple exits, this problem is solved to some extent. Kindergarten and a couple of good schools are within the vicinity. Other options nearby are in Al Barsha, which is not very far...just 25 mins away. Bus service to Metro is pretty good. Ibn Batuta Mall with almost all options of shopping is very near - minutes drive away. Dubai Marina, JLT are minutes away. Marina Beach, Jumeirah Beach, The Walk are just 15 Dhs away by Taxi or say minutes away by car. Overall me and my family are very much satisfied staying in Discovery Gardens and specifically in Zen Cluster, near street 1. Show less

Would I do it again? Yes and no!
Shops and necessities readily available, nice layout for a studio apartment
Poor security, poor maintenance, irritable neighbours and thin walls!
Discovery Gardens is a great place to live in in terms of shops and accessibility. There's everything you need within walking distance as long as you live in Zen Cluster. Positives: 1. Great accessibility. 2. Everything you need is within walking distance (provided you live in Zen Cluster). 3. Appearance-wise, excellent. Very green. 4. Spacious more… balcony with our studio apartment. 5. Lots of storage space with the built-in wardrobes. Negatives: 1. Bad quality finish. 2. Inefficient and money-greedy agents. 3. Poor maintenance - despite repeated calls have to wait for very long to get something fixed. 4. Walls are so thin that if we have the TV on a slightly high volume the neighbours complain! And we can hear their baby screaming all the time. 5. Sometimes sewage pipes burst and the smell is awful. 6. Security is a joke - lots of unwanted business cards get dropped off at our door - usually for massage parlours. 7. Annoying neighbours. The apartment above us doesn't have a balcony. The lady smokes and drops her butts in ours! Building security did not take any action despite repeated complaints.Show less

Nice community but you cant avoid traffic
Good price
Traffic
I think Discovery Garden could be the best affordable community in Dubai, if there was a way to avoid rush hour traffic. But there is none. The area is nice with large open spaces and lots of shops and restaurants, the apartment is large enough for 2 adults and a more… baby, we didn't have any problems with the building, and we pay a relatively good rent. But to live here you simply have to accept the fact that you will spend far more time in your car than you would like. Show less

Pretty decent for the price!
View, Amenities, Access, Price
Traffic, Smell, Ugly Entrance of Building
I have been living in this building for over a year and a half and every day makes it closer to making me feel like Discovery Gardens is now a permanent Home. It will be sad to leave the apartment because of the misunderstandings from the letting agency more… and sending an eviction notice. The place is very close to the Cinema, Ibn Batutta Mall is 5-7 minutes walk, Metro is 15 Minutes by walk, there are restaurants and major stores all 2-3 minutes walk away from the building. All the basic amenities, like Barber, Laundry etc are also around the corner. Overall its an ideal location to live in with a great view from the balcony however the place sometimes smells bad because of the water storage right in front of the building across the road.

Discovery Gardens is a beautiful place to live. Women can easily stay here. There's no threat to women here as such. It's well maintained and the buildings here are surrounded with wonderful compound having benches for people to sit. Kids can play in compound of the buildings. Accessibility to more… couple of good restaurants including only veg restaurants as well. Sunrise supermarket which gives home delivery for as low as 20 dirhams order. But only worst thing is traffic. They need to make more exits towards Dubai & Abu Dhabi.Show less

Discovery Gardens Review - Studio Flat
Great view, beautiful surroundings, near to metro & mall, free gym
Very less space, high rent
I live in a 400 sq.m studio flat which is quite small when compared to other studio apartments on other streets in Discovery Gardens but for 2 working people who don't have a car, the location is great as all the groceries and restaurants feature only on the 1st/2nd street. more… Plus IBN Battuta mall and metro station are both nearby. For newlywed couples it is a great place to start with, as it is a posh location, reasonably priced with all amenities, transportation, entertainment, restaurants, free swimming pool and free gym.

Discovery Gardens
The pool a walk away and PO Boxes too
The Smell!!!
It is good for children as no busy roads around the clusters, and there are tennis courts, and pools onsite. If you are a light sleeper, you might hear the mosque if you have an apartment nearby. Not great at rush hour getting in or out, as only 2 more… options, plus you have the traffic of the mall added too. Would be a lot better if there was a gym onsite too, as the local gyms by the shops really are not very good!Show less

Memory Box of 3 years
Parking space, View and community
Traffic in the morning and evening, too expensive
My experience in Discovery Garden was really great. I stayed there for 3 years. The only problem I faced with the landlord's office staff. I really want to mention the name Green Facility Management. Rest of it was really good, That is a really good place to stay with family. more… The finishes and layout of the apartment was good too. The best thing within the apartment is the full length window and healthy number of wardrobes (good finish too). There was a drawback for toilet drain on the floor. I also likes the toilets, big counters and mirror. There was less noise level because of plantation. Good space for the kids to play around, good swimming facility although it started almost a year back so I didn't get much time to use it. There should be schools near to this area as most of the apartments have families. My son actually enjoys by sitting next to the window. It holds so many good memories and lot of baggage. :) It was a good experience living there. If i will get an opportunity to live there again I will definitely grab it! I put up pictures of moving out day, view from the window, my son enjoying the window and the view.Show less

Zen 03 at Discovery Gardens
There is always a guard on-duty in the reception of the building.
Lots of cockroaches
It would be nice if the view from the backside balcony is much better. Nakheel should finish the landscaping: the middle of every building should look like a park. It is more appealing in the eyes.

The Traffic
This is a Nakheel development I would recon its 6-8 years old, the apartment I live in is a very spacious 1 bed with 1 en-suite and a visitor toilet, the living room & kitchen is an open plan arrangement which is very good for entertaining guests. The traffic during more… peak hours is horrendous, so if you don't mind that I would recommend this area. Value for money in Dubai terms. Show less

Zen 1 Bedroom
Ease to go to office/malls/medical/hotel/great time
Prices going higher each year
Discovery garden is great place to live in, it allows swimming pool access. Its access to IBN Battuta mall is also great plus point. Greenery around with trees and ample free parking is best thing to be there if you live anywhere in Dubai, and Discovery gardens has it. Nearest supermarkets, more… restaurants are best to live here happily One thing that concerns is the day by day raise in housing rent making people staying here to either shift to studio apartments or shift back to Sharjah or Ajman in near future. Landlords do take complete advantage and raise the housing rent. If your company is providing you housing allowance best place to shift is Discovery garden, if you have to put in housing expenses better to shift to elsewhere.Show less

Studio Flat in DG
Location
Gym is not maintained and no pets are allowed. Not ok for pet lovers.
DG flat is ok with me. Quiet and safe place so far. I just wish they improve their building facilities like the gym so residents will have other activities within the area especially it is part of what we are paying for rent and monthly dues. I would also love more… if they will allow pets like dogs/cats as long as resident will abide in the rules/policies of having pets. Show less

It's ok but...
Discovery Gardens has a good price if you looking for an apartment, but you need to have a car or use public transportation like bus or call for taxi. The metro line is far (used to live at street 1, building 19) approximately 20-25mins walking distance which is a lot more… especially at summer time. The Ibn Battuta Mall is the same walking distance. There are many Indian and Lebanese restaurants around, also there are many supermarkets and pharmacies. DEWA office is very close. The apartment has a medium size bathroom and balcony. Not the most modern buildings. Close to highway, but always big traffic in the morning. There is a simple gym, no swimming pool, no jacuzzi, no sauna, no steam room. Show less

Decent neighborhood
Spacious
Average reception area and average maintenance
Discovery gardens is for people who want a quite sober neighborhood. The apartments are really big and airy. The rooms are like playgrounds with plenty of space. You can fill in loads and loads of furnishings and still it would not look cluttered. The layout is simple and gives room more… to any type of desired decor. Drawbacks are : average maintenance, average view, average reception area and average parking lot.Show less
